Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Menu Plan Monday - February 8
Last week I strayed off the menu a bit because we had more leftovers than we expected. So I am bumping Sunday's meal to today. I actually made lemon chicken on Sunday. The leftover chicken from Sunday will still be put into this Monday's meal. My favorite meal last week was definitely the Mexican Pizza followed very closely by the Brown Sugar Chicken (got to love crock pot cooking!). I loved that I was able to totally eat leftovers of the Mexican pizza for lunch as was my husband. It still tasted great. The Brown Sugar Chicken was easy and very tasty. It took just about 10 minutes to prep in the crock pot. For the most part though, a successful meal in my home is one that the whole family enjoys. This is not always easy as my son can be a tad picky and likes to stick with the same meal (he has had peanut butter sandwiches as his lunch staple since about 3rd grade prior to that it was PB&J).
Hamburgers or Cheeseburgers (pepper jack cheese) with chips.
Panko Breaded Chicken Strips with Salad (always a hit)
KFC -Yep, KFC. I do not make this a habit, but our radio station is hosting three concerts this week. I have to work Thursday's show, but at least it is in my town so I will not be home terribly late. When I work shows in Phoenix I usually don't get home until well after midnight (breaking down takes forever).
Pot Roast with mashed potatoes and carrots. I love this recipe!
Beef Enchiladas (using some of the beef left over from the pot roast)
Shrimp Scampi My husband's birthday is Thursday so this is actually for him. This recipe is incredible and he just loves it. It is a can't miss meal that will definitely make him happy.

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
